Gatwick deploys AUDS C-UAS solution
The AUDS C-UAS solution has been deployed by Gatwick Airport to protect its flightpaths from rogue UAS.
The system has been deployed as part of a solution deployed by the airport in response to a sustained UAS attack in December 2018.
The AUDS C-UAS solution is designed to disrupt and neutralise UAS and remotely piloted aircraft systems engaged in hostile airborne surveillance and potentially malicious activity. The AUDS system combines electronic-scanning radar target detection, electro-optical tracking/classification and directional RF inhibition capability.
The AUDS system integrates technologies from British companies, Blighter Surveillance Systems, Enterprise Control Systems, Liteye Systems and Chess Dynamics.
Stewart Wingate, chief executive officer, Gatwick airport, said: ‘Chess Dynamics’ anti-drone technology and ability to move quickly and work closely with the airport’s security teams were vital in allowing Gatwick to reopen without the support of the military after the airport was attacked in December 2018.
‘The anti-drone technology and package of ongoing support provided by Chess Dynamics has also given Gatwick the resilience that a busy international airport needs in order to minimise and mitigate the potential threat from drones.’
